to the "kudlow report." i am larry kudlow. one week after the devastating school shooting in newtown, connecticut, left 26 people dead, the national rifle association is breaking its silence. the gun rights group is calling on congress to put armed guards at every school. it's a very interesting development. actually, we could bring in -- let's go right to nbc's danielle lee. she's going to join us with the nra details. good evening, danielle. >> reporter: larry, good evening. after a week long talk about gun control and protecting our children, the situation isn't fewer guns, but more of them on camp campus. the nra's leader blamed the media for a culture of violence. and also accused the country of failing to protect our children by not putting police on every campus with guns. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. >> even supporters of the nra called the organization out of touch with america. lawmakers and top educators fired back. they say any solution also needs to include gun control and mental health care. >> i don't believe that the only way to stop
